Families Should Not Be Used For Political Point Scoring, Says Man With The Not-Bad Looking Daughters

Tony Abbott satire

Pointing out that he has three daughters and a wife who are all female, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said that families should be kept out of the front line when it comes to politics.

“Look, when you’re surrounded by strong, intelligent women – who are pretty good looking by the way – it’s important that they’re not used to score cheap political points.

“I’ve got three daughters and a wife – all four of them women, incidentally. They’re my family. They didn’t sign up for politics.

“We’ve got a great family – 80% female, 20% male if you’re wondering – but I think we all agree that family life should be kept private”.

    I voted for Tony Abbott because he paraded these good sorts in front of voters with what seemed to be a promise that we would be seeing more of them (wink wink). Now he says they are out of bounds, I can put up with breaking the “no new taxes” promise but breaking this one has me abandoniing LNP next election.

    Looks like they’re helping the poor old dribbling bastard across the road.

    This coming from the man that paraded his family around during the pre-election campaigns, and continues to be regularly photographed with them, and has to point out how good looking they are and a speech about not scoring political points… Not scoring points?
